Six Chicks Project Parade!!!

Good Morning, Happy Sunday and Happy December 6!!!! It's that time of month again when the Limelight DT get's to dazzle you with our monthly projects. This month our theme is anything to do with Calenders. Right away I knew what I wanted to do.
I have this neighbor who is wonderful about remembering birthdays. She sends a little something to each of our family member's on their special day. I want to be better at remembering birthday's, so I have been wanting to make one of these birthday date folders for some time. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make myself a little something cute to help me remember all the birthday's in my life. It was so easy to do with all the coordinating products Limelight Papercrafts carries. Actually, that was the hardest part for me, choosing which papers I wanted to use. I went with the Jillibean Soup products, most of them from the Lentil Soup line. Chocolate and olive are two of my favorite colors to work with so I knew this would be perfect. The template is a My Timeless template, it's the Recipe Wrap Up. There are 4 little pockets on the inside which hold the lined, month cards. I then can write the person's name and their birth date for their birthday month and I now have them all in one place. Here's a close up of the monthly cards. The template I used had the year printed on them, so I covered 'em up with a 3/4 circle since I don't need this 1 year, I get to use this over and over.
There are many different panels you can decorate on this template, I left a few of them plain, used 4 of them for the pockets and then did up 2 of them with large paperclips if I needed to add any notes or bits of paper along the years.

So here you have it, a great way to make a coordinated birthday date book. here's all the supplies I used:

CS: Kraft, olive, and chocolate chip cs, Jillibean Soup dp

Ink: white gel pen

Accessories: Bean stalks, cool beans, scalloped border punch, various circle punches, janome sew mini.

Be sure to see what the rest of the team came up with for this month's challenge. It's the perfect time to get started on next year's calender projects!!!!
